All you have to do is hold the pound (#) button down. It will then say exit silent mode. If you ever want to put your phone back in silent mode, just hold the pound (#) button down.

My iphne 3 will only vibrate but not ring

If you're missing incoming phone calls due to your iPhone not ringing, you may have accidentally switched the ringer to vibrate or silent, according to Apple. The switch on the left side of the iPhone turns off the ringer and usually sets your phone to vibrate mode, but if your iPhone's vibrate setting is also disabled the phone will instead be set to silent mode. When in the phone's sound settings vibrate mode can be enabled, and the ringer volume of your phone is adjustable.

I have a nokia 6275 cell phone but he can't do vibrate in any mode

Go to profiles, select a profile you wish to use, click on personalise. For the vibrate option, you can select 'vibrate, then ring', if you want it to vibrate before it rings.
Select 'rythm', if you want it to be vibrating as it rings .
If you need a profile where it only vibrates without sound, most prefarably in the silent mode, select that profile, choose the personalise option. It the ringer option, select none. In the vibrate option, select vibrate only.
Pls if this was helpful, rate it a thumbs up.

Can the jitterbug ringer be turned off?

You can set your phone to Vibrate or silent mode so that the phone vibrates rather than rings. With the phone on and open, look at the inside screen while adjusting the ringer volume using the rubber volume button on the outside of the phone. As you adjust the volume, the inside screen will display the ringer volume level. It ranges from Max to Vibrate. Simply turn it down until the level reads Vibrate.

If you would like more step-by-step instructions, please call our Customer Service department at (800) 733-6632. We are available 24/7.

My LG VX-8700 does not vibrate. Ring works, but vibrate mode is the same as silent mode. Can this be fixed?

What happened is you probably set it on silent and from the soft keys, you increased the ringer volume. What you want to do is go to main menu => settings => profiles, and from there make sure your ringing volume is set on lowest possible.

How do i turn my phone to silent mode?

To place the handset in Silent / Vibrate Mode
Step 1
To place the handset in Silent / Vibrate Only Mode, hold down the pound key (#) for about 2 seconds. To exit Silent / Vibrate Mode, perform the same action while in Silent / Vibrate Only Mode. You will see a confirmation message for Silent / Vibrate Only Mode, each time you enter or exit Silent / Vibrate Mode.
The SCH-U470 (Juke) handset will vibrate rather than ring when you receive a phone call, message or alert while in Silent Vibrate Only Mode.
Step 2
While in standby mode, press the volume key, located on the left side of the handset, then select either “Vibrate Only", “Alarm Only” or “All Sounds Off”. To disable perform the same action while in Silent / Vibrate Mode.
The SCH-U470 (Juke) handset will vibrate rather than ring when you receive a phone call, message or alert while in Silent / Vibrate Only Mode.

İPhone not ringing

you can actually move the button , on the top left hand side of your iphone, over the ringer volume, you will see a red or orange dot, this means the switch has you iphone in silent mode, I was stuck on this, until I found it is a actual switch, look at it closely, you can move it. So where you see the red dot, put your finger on it and move it the opposite way, and I do not mean press the button, I mean, flip the switch on it, then your phone will not be in silent mode anymore,,, this was very annoying, I hope it helps anyone that has the same problem.
